>>221115>Sometimes people are greedy and overextend themselves, take more than they should, and we need to stop that.
Do you know how many earths it would require for every country on earth to live consuming as much as the usa does?
Its so utterly bizarre you come in assuming people have ever shown desire to set limits. Do you hear how ridiculous you sound..
You do realize people strive for the best lifestyle everywhere, do you not?
If they properly measured and tracked natural resources the ocean wouldn't be on the brink of being a dead zone. Capitalism is a free for all, it's always been a free for all.
The economy doesn't organize anything. Supply and demand..the bottom lin and sometimes subsidy.. are the only guiding hands involved.
Seriously you still haven't learned all the ways companies strive to reverse environmental protection? How much they skirt blame and responsibility for it? Why do you think they spend billions of dollars lobbying for their own "justice" on capital hill? Nobody up there is remotely concerned with "just having enough to eat"
And tracking and divying up grain, metals, textiles does not even count as efficiently managing natural resources. If you're bulldozing your carbon sink consistently for development/agriculture you clearly haven't factored everything in.
Hell you're not even accounting for inflation or accessibility. Look at the way the water crisis is managed in Arizona, and tell me the government efficiently tracks. They never have. And what they HAVE tracked is a joke.
They might as well be dumping water in the Gobi desert in a lot of your western states. Look at how poorly rainwater is retained in reservoirs in California, how much of it is dumped into unsustainable agriculture. You realize how completely out of touch you sound?
